Anna Baker’s Wedding Dress
This is more of a sad haunted curse than a scary one, but it’s no less chilling. Anna Baker was the daughter of the rich iron magnate Ellis Baker. Anna had the misfortune of falling in love with an iron worker at her dad’s factory, and even went out had had a wedding dress commissioned. When her father found out, he had the worker run out of town and forbid Anna to marry someone of a lower class. She spent the rest of her life in her room, heartbroken and alone.
She died in 1914, and when the Baker mansion was turned into the Baker Museum in the 70’s, Anna’s dress was put on display. Since then, strange things started happening. People have reported strange voices, sounds and movement. The most common instance of the supernatural however, is that the dress dances; slowly and tenderly, like a heartbroken woman dancing alone in her room, imagining what could have been.
